Talon™ gloves have three-layer protection in the palm to prevent blisters and fatigue and extra padding to protect the knuckles. According to the company, the gloves have reinforced fingertip seams, which will not blow out; an adjustable hook and loop closure for a secure fit; anti-slip material in the palms to provide a good grip even when they're wet; and a fabric thumb patch for wiping away sweat. Winter-proof Talon™ gloves allow you to dial a cell phone and manipulate small parts while you keep your hands warm and dry in temperatures as low as 0ÞF, says the company. Carpenter-style Talon™ gloves expose the tips of the index and middle fingers, as well as the thumb, for use in various construction jobs.
